Welcome to the Oral History of Sault Ste. Marie (OHSSM) official website, your first stop on a journey into our collective human memory. This project perserves Sault Ste. Marie and area history through videotaped conversations with citizens past and present.

This site is the place to find information about the origins of the OHSSM, how the oral histories are collected and preserved, fundraising and sponsorship and how to go about submitting a person to the OHSSM subject list.

To watch an oral history interview, click the link to the Sault Ste. Marie Public Library. It will take you to the Public Library website and the OHSSM archive where our Oral Histories are safely stored for future generations.

Whether you are conducting research or simply interested in people and their stories, the Oral History of Sault Ste. Marie archive is sure to be of interest. Those involved in the launch of this initiative, have done so with a bold but but pragmatic goal: to preserve the past as a gift to the future. Enjoy!
